Utrechtsche studenten almanak voor ..., 1856, 1856

Onderstaande tekst is niet 100% betrouwbaar

Swift-fleeting joy and transient ill

To man are ever near,

That pendulum vibrating still

Betwixt a smile and tear.

Nought else on Earth can joy impart,

Or bliss supreme afFord;

T’is promised to the pure in heart,

»Por they shall see the Lord.”

Then let not joy nor grief, my dear!

Thy free-born soul enslave;

But think of God as alivays near

And look beyond the grave.
